Dedicated To Giving Back

To Front-Line Workers!

Utilizing incentive programs designed to enrich a nurse’s lifestyle and overall well-being!

Brian Paonessa

What Is FFN

Fit Functional Nurses

At its core, Fit Functional Nurses (FFN) is dedicated to giving back to front-line workers; those who dedicate their lives to others before themselves.
Utilizing incentive programs designed to enrich a nurse’s lifestyle and overall well-being for the care, dedication, and compassion they provide to others.

FFN hopes a little recognition, appreciation, and experiences outside the
workplace will help balance the ever-growing number of burnt-out nurses physically, spiritually, and mentally.

One of the many goals of FFN is to help other nurses realize the need to create a solid work-life balance so they don’t end up making the same mistakes I have. I wouldn’t want any of my fellow nurses to go through what I went through.

It has taken me down paths that, quite frankly, I’m not proud of. I’m very grateful to have recognized after 6 years the negative outcomes of giving so much into my career.
